NHL back in Europe

February 13, 2009

For the 3rd year, the NHL season will kick off with two games played in Europe.  The Miami Herald broke the news yesterday.  The Florida Panthers are amoung the teams headed overseas and will play the Chicago Blackhawks in Helsinki, Finland.  The Detroit Red Wings will take on the St. Louis Blues in Stockholm, Sweden.

I said last year the 09-10 season should open in Helsinki, but I think they looked over the part where I said it should be the Stars.

Stars get 2 points in FL trip

So, we won’t even mention the 4-2 loss against the Lightning Monday.  That was, well, it was pathetic.  The Stars allowed their first short-handed goal, and despite plenty of power play opportunities weren’t able to get the job done.  It was nice to see Halpie, Jussi and Smitty again though.

Wednesday, they took on the Florida Panthers and was a much better outcome winning 4-1.  Mike Ribeiro got his first career hat trick!!!  SO EXCITING!  Good job Lil Ribbons!!!

Sorry to be MIA so much lately, the All-Star events are this weekend.  I will make a post tomorrow with some fun about the game, and will be liveblogging the game Sunday.

Halfway through the season…
